Tampons are not all created equal and, contrary to what you might assume, they’re often not made from 100% cotton. If you read tampon box labels, you’re likely to find such ingredients as rayon, polyester, polypropylene, fragrance, and fiber finishes (whatever that means).
Considering that the average woman will use about 12,000 tampons in her lifetime, what you put in your body matters. That’s why Emrita’ve constructed it's tampons from a women’s health perspective.
Emerita tampons are made of 100% certified organic cotton. That means you can expect Emerita's cotton to be free from pesticide residues. Emerita cotton is cleansed with a mild hydrogen peroxide solution, so it’s also chlorine-free. What’s more, cotton is a great, natural fiber. It’s inherently fluffy, absorbent and requires minimal chemical processing. Cotton is simply cotton.
Construction matters, too. So Emrita tampons also feature a high-quality security veil—a fine, cotton outer mesh to help keep the fibers in the core of the tampon, where they belong. A lot of tampons don’t have a security veil, or if they do it’s often not a very secure one. Without a high-quality security veil, there’s more risk of tampon fibers shedding and being left behind.
